Work for Us

Archway is an Aberdeen based charity providing respite, shared care, residential care and other support services for children, young people and adults with learning disabilities.

Working for Archway

We pride ourselves in providing homely and welcoming services with excellent resources such as snoezelen rooms, activity areas, adapted bathrooms and shower rooms and moving and handling equipment that make working in them much more enjoyable.

In our respite services we strive to provide fun, safe, enjoyable, quality respite breaks. As well as supporting the people who use our service with all aspects of daily living, staff also help co-ordinate and participate in a variety of outings and activities which are planned during respite stays depending on what people choose to do. This may include trips to the local shops, going out for a meal or a coffee, visits to the local pub, arts and crafts, baking, bowling, going to see a film at the cinema, theatre shows or an outing to the beach for an ice cream to name but a few!

In our permanent care services our aim is to enable staff to provide person centred support for all our residents to help them live happy, healthy lives so they can achieve the outcomes that they wish to achieve.  These may include planning and going on a holiday with residents, supporting people with their hobbies and interests such as going to football matches, concerts, day trips, shopping and accessing other day opportunities.
